A huge thank you and congratulations are in order to 2 of our wonderful fundraisers and friends -Fiona and Russ; who successfully completed their sky dives to raise funds for us on Friday 1st September.
Their efforts have managed to raise over £400; can you help donate some pennies as a token of goodwill? You can donate here : mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/fiona1011
Not only did they go out of their comfort zones and jump out of a plane at 15,000ft in the air, the sheer excitement and the adrenaline rush pumping through their veins lead to a proposal once both pairs of feet had firmly touched the ground! You can watch both their jumps and that special proposal here - m.youtube.com/watch?v=6rZIP_6Dn0o&feature=youtu.be
I would like to give a heartfelt thanks to them both for supporting our cause (plus Claire for wearing /promoting our t-shirt / encouraging the sky dive!) and give a massive congratulations on behalf of the whole Maisha team on their long and happy future together. ❤️
Asante Sana, Pongezi na Mungu aweza kukubariki.

Some sad news to announce today; back in December we shared with you that our regular corporate donor that covered our nursery project fees came to an abrupt ending. This has amounted to an uncontrollable burden on our funds so we will therefore be closing our nursery project this week having given the staff and children 3 months advanced notice to allow for a smoother transition.
We hope to revive the project in the near future however we can only achieve this by receiving either a corporate donation or a large donation from individuals so if please dig a little into your pockets if you can and help us save our nursery. You can either donate via our website or by simply texting "MSHA00 £5" or "MSHA00 £10" now!
Make a difference today, without your continued support we would not have achieved what we have and not be here today.
Thank You ... See MoreSee Less

2016 marks the end of the road for 3 of our original sponsored children who have attended high school for 4 years, all thanks to your generosity and support. We wish all Francis, Mercy and Josphat the very best as they proceed onto university or onto their first jobs. We will continue to follow these students for the year ahead or until they settle to assist them adapt to the next stage of their lives. 🙂
2017 marks the beginning of 2 new sponsored children joining the programme - Darius and John who are very excited to join the scheme and are ready to study hard.
Josphat sent us this video recording and he wanted us to share with all our supporters as a message of thanks. Josphat was a truly fantastic student and it was our pleasure supporting him through our sponsorship programme. Josphat received a mean grade of B in his KCSE examinations which is absolutely fantastic and is heading off to university this September. On behalf of the whole team here, congrats Josphat, keep in touch, we will miss you! ... See MoreSee Less
We have also surprised some of our sponsors this evening with individual videos from their sponsored children recorded specifically for them 🙂
Thank you Maisha foundation

The Christmas holidays are here!
Before the year was over we wanted one final gathering with our wonderful sponsored children where we hosted a party with food for potentially the final time at our struggling nursery project.
Spirits were high but in everybody's minds was the pending decision as to whether the project will remain open in 2017.
We can only achieve this by receiving a corporate donation or a large donation from individuals so if please dig a little into your pockets if you can and help us save our nursery. You can either donate via our website or by simply texting "MSHA00 £5" or "MSHA00 £10" now! Make a difference today, without your continued support we would not have achieved what we have and not be here today.
Asante Sana and have a fantastic Christmas, we hope to have some good news come the new year ... See MoreSee Less

Before the Christmas break we took some of our sponsored children to get new uniforms, shoes and a fresh batch of learning books for the year ahead. We will do the same for the remaining students before the new year.
They were very appreciative and felt blessed to receive them, such a lovely way to enjoy Christmas.
Merry Christmas on behalf of the team and we hope for a successful 2017. ... See MoreSee Less

Unfortunately a key monthly corporate donor has unexpectedly stopped supporting us without any advanced notification, of which we used these funds to maintain our nursery projects approx £200 per month.
Free food and education for up to 60 young children under 5 years old, employment for 3 teachers, a cleaner and a cook are all now at risk of termination in January 2017 if we can't find an alternative.
If anybody knows of any corporate or individual who can assist us please do get in touch immediately. It would be such a shame to jeopardise such a critical project for the slum community.
